China Dolls

An ongoing exploration of the fetishization of Asian women and their bodies, this series works to reclaim the image and identity of Asian women by denying the viewer full access to the body. Portraits of Asian women recount remarks that have been spoken to them, their faces only visible through these projected words that shape the misconceptions of the Asian diaspora and what others think being an Asian woman means.
